Default Bad Hard drive

Having a problem with a hard drive. It's a Barracuda 7200.8 300 gig drive. It stopped working and I really need to get some stuff off of it. The drive is still spinning up when I plug it in, but is not being recognized as a drive. I have tried multiple connections in the computer and an external hook up by USB. I'm thinking it could be the controller board, and I have an extra hard drive some make and model. Was just wanting to check with some people and see if any of you have run into this before and if you think it could be the controller board. Thanks

I would say that yes, the controller board. It's not under warranty, is it? I have never switched controller cards, but I heard it does work.
